In August 2013, SES Platform Services (now MX1) won an international tender by Turner Broadcasting System to provide playout services for Cartoon Network, Boomerang, glitz*, TNT Film and TNT Serie (in both SD and HD) for the German-speaking market, digitization of existing Turner content, and playout for Turner on-demand and catch-up services in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and the Benelux region, from November 2013.
Cartoon Network launched in Germany on September 3, 2005 as a Saturday morning programming block on kabel eins. In December 2013 kabel eins cancelled the programming block. In June 2006, a German version of Boomerang was launched; this was followed by the simultaneous launch of Cartoon Network Germany as a 24-hour channel and TCM Germany on December 5, 2006. On 1 September 2016, Cartoon Network Germany re-branded using graphics from the Check It 4.0 branding package.
